MUIR - ROSS - grave in Ravenshoe Cemetery


courtesy of Australian Cemeteries Index




ROSS - MUIR. At the Methodist Church, Ravenshoe on Saturday, August 8, a very pretty wedding took place, when Ethel Marie, daughter of Mrs. S. E. Muir, Ravenshoe, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Henry Francis, second son of Mr. and Mrs. Ross, Malanda. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr. F. Muir, looked charming in a gown of white angel skin lace over satin, made on classical lines and featuring bishop sleeves. Her veil was confined with a wreath of orange blossoms, and she carried a bouquet of white watsonia and stocks. Miss Phyllis Davis, cousin of the bride, attended as bridesmaid. Her dress was of pink lace and georgette, with hat and shoes en suite. Her bouquet was of rose colored sweet peas. The Rev. Lanham, of Herberton, was the officiating minister. Mrs. Davis presided at the organ and Mr. J. Guy was best man. The reception after the ceremony was held in the School of Arts, when Mrs. Muir, mother of the bride, received her guests, in a frock of floral crepe-de-chine, with hat and coat to match. More than 40 guests were present.
